I pulled out my 512kE, after about 5 or 6 months since I last used it, flip the switch, plop in the floppy, and I hear a motor continually running, and get the "Can't Find Startup" screen…. 

I shut down, poked the disk out, flipped the switch again,  and the same happens….

How do I fix this, or who do I send it to to be repaired? 

I also have a M0131 that does nothing that does nothing that needs to be repaired….

Well….  It spins the disk for a second, then does nothing…..

So…. What do I do?  Where do I go?  Who do I send to?

I've used this for the last 20 years without a problem...

…And the Donkeys on eBay are asking over $100 for a working 800k, yet, they list it as "untested", and "as is"….
